My take on this:

* it's too costly (in terms of available human resources) to maintain 
both versions for a prolonged period.

* 0.7.x data formats are incompatible with the mapred branch. If we 
maintain both versions, those who want to migrate will have to convert 
their data.

* the mapred version can be run in a "local" mode, which requires just a 
single machine.
